Spline Joint

The BB1025X features a 3-piece body structure, with the bridge placed on the centre piece for maximum string vibration. Instead of simply gluing wood pieces together, the 'Spline Joint' design works by incorporating a Maple plate on its joint sections to achieve the same vibration you'd expect from a 1-piece body over this 3-piece structure.

Diagonal Body Thru Stringing

As well as the 3-piece body and 'Spline Joint' design, the BB1025X also features unique diagonal body thru stringing. This work by angling the string at 45 degrees at the saddle, reducing stress and securing the tensions of the strings. The larger than normal attachment area to the saddle helps for improved transmission of vibration, resulting in a fuller and more articulate sound.


Both front and rear pickups are specially invented for the BB1025X series. The 'Open Face Pickups' are incorporated to deal with the aggressive playing styles of rock guitarists, ensuring maximum sound quality whilst retaining its nuances.

5-Piece Neck

The 5-piece neck is constructed from Maple and Nato for maximum durability and style. This helps to prevent the neck from warping or curling over long periods of time.

Nickel Silver Nut

The nuts are constructed from Nickel Silver (the same material as the fret wires) ensuring maximum sound quality and durability. Unlike conventional bone or artificial ivory nut, it gives the same sound quality and feeling even when open notes are played. For any bass players it is a crucial part of well-defined low end.
